January 17, 1928 - September 21, 2020
It is with great sadness that the Lowenheim Family announces the passing of our rock and soul, Maralyn, who led a full life, was loved by so many and died peacefully in her sleep. Daughter of Sam and Frieda; devoted wife of Henry “Hy," all of blessed memory; loving mother of Carol, Gwen, and Hedy; grandest mother-in-law to Steve and formerly Stuart; dearest grandmother of Matthew (Ligaya), Frieda, and Rosa (Barth); loving great-grandmother of Malaya, Henry, and Sloane; devoted sister of Dorothy, Edythe, Evelyn, and Martin, all of blessed memory; devoted aunt of Harold, Marian, Eddie, Michael, Liz, Robbie, and Ricky. She had an incredible love of opera, classical music, reading, nature, and the U.S. Constitution. Her curiosity about life never ceased.
The family greatly appreciates the excellent care Maralyn received from VNS Hospice and her devoted care-givers. Raised in Coney Island; educated at Lincoln HS; lived life in Boro Park and Midwood; and passed from life in the Great Nation of Brooklyn. She received her BA from Brooklyn College, MSW from Hunter College, was additionally trained at the National Institute for the Psychotherapies, and for 50 years as a psychotherapist helped hundreds of patients find their way. She opened her home to many. She will never be forgotten and we are still laughing at her jokes; she knew a million of 'em! Dear Maralyn, you will be in our hearts forever.
